PostSubject: Methadone Doctor Advise   Fri Aug 17, 2012 12:42 am

Hello everyone,

I have been on Methadone for about 15 years. I'm thirty years old, so yeah I suppose it has been right at fifteen years. Anyway, the reason I've posted this thread, is solely because I first searched the forum for what I was looking for. Obviously I searched Google to locate the forum, so yeah, lots of searching going on here, from my side of the monitor.

What am I searching for? I'm so glad you asked! Smile

My doctor recently resigned, and left me to die (so to speak) and I need some advise. If you could be kind enough to send me in the "right" direction. I am NOT interested in the addiction treatment bullshit. I don't have an addiction, well...I suppose if you wanted to get very technical about it, anyone who has been on "anything" for 15 years has an addiction, no matter how you'd like to justify it, but in my case, I have been prescribed Methadone for my pain.

Back to topic: I live in Kentucky. I am willing to drive to see a decent doctor on a monthly basis, as long as it's a doctor who has a tad bit of common since, when it comes to my situation.

If you're like me and a little paranoid about this forum, then please send me a private message. I would really appreciate any help I can get.




thanks!

Hi everyone!
I want to know can you use in the clinic as a brand (metadol in tablets of 0.5 mg 0.10 mg 0.25 mg)?
I live in Ukraine and have not written and did not look forum!
On methadone therapy over 5 years of daily dosage of 150 mg but from Saturday to 0.5 mg reduced.
few years, 3 three in combination 50 to 50 used brand (metaddikt 40 mg tablets which can be dissolved in water).For this reason, I took over 2 years daily dose of 140 mg and when stopped giving metaddikt and the daily dose was given after metadol and reappeared metaddikt and for this reason I raised the dose to 155 mg.
Tell me why this brand metadol toxic and maybe he is more levorotatory as in Canada, it is used as a pain reliever?
Since the title metaddikt two letters D and hence it is dextrorotatory.
For this reason, after a long reception metadol metaddikt going to feel withdrawal symptoms!
I know in 2014, Ukraine will all patients methadone substitution therapy translate into a liquid form (syrup) and the tablet will end in 2015.
But as far as I have information metadol will the rest of time ...
It was very interesting and very much needed information about the brand metadol tablets Made in Canada.
I apologize for my English I use Google translator!
Regards Denis Ukraine

Den,
I am not sure if I understand exactly what information you are looking for. I did some searching for you and came up with the information on the link posted below. I hope this helps.
It was revised in 2012.

Всем доброго дня !
Обращаюсь к участникам ОЗТ-метадон кто уже больше 5-ти лет на метадон заместительной терапии!Я принимаю препарат "Метадол" ,утром или вечером бывает такая "топка" я её называю,а именно тело начинает гореть и начинается лить пот и это мин.10-15 такое впечатление,что внутри организма/тела кто то распалил костёр и подкидывает дрова и подкидывает...Скажу ощущения не из лучших!Хочу узнать бывает ли ещё у кого подобные симптомы и если да то как бороться?

All the good days!
I appeal to the members of OST-methadone who have more than 5 years on methadone substitution therapy, I take the drug "Metadol", in the morning or in the evening there is a "furnace" I call it, namely, the body begins to burn and nachenaet pouring sweat and it's minutes. 10-15 have the impression that inside the body / bodies who then whetted caster and podkidvaet wood and throws ... I will say is not the best feeling, I want to know is whether anyone has similar symptoms and if so, how to fight?

I ask forgiveness for my English ...

Zac Hello!
Very pleased to learn that the organization in which I work as a regional representative in Zaporozhye known in America as our all your favorite Olga Belyaeva, too!
http://astau.org.ua/kontakty/ last name on the list is I!
I'm the reason that in Ukraine there are no people who can answer my question, and I have long been looking for answers to many questions regarding methadone maintenance treatment is available in American forums for doctors who know a lot about this!
If everything was so easy, I would not use a forum and asked my home!
The fact that Ukraine is used in replacement therapy in pill manufacturer Metadol Canada.And nowhere else in the world metadol substitution treatment is not used!Only in Ukraine, and I'm already more than five years, accept it and over it and not only I have a question to the use of this drug and its side effects.By this I wrote here in the hope that someone competent in this matter Doctors answer me or patients who have had something like that!

Hello Den!!!

So wonderful to meet one of my counterparts from the Ukraine! Smile I'm glad that you are involved with the Association of Substitution Therapy Receivers in Ukraine! There are a few medical experts in the Methadone & Buprenorphine Discussion group on Facebook - at least one of them is an award winning physician in addiction medicine (recipient of the Dole/Nyswander Award)... There are also a couple of providers that are active on NAMA Recovery's We Speak Methadone (and buprenorphine) as well.

I applaud you for reaching out and doing all you can to better your own treatment and the treatment of your peers in the Ukraine. It's my honor to meet you, and I look forward to continued dialogue.

Because treatment works,
Zac Talbott, BA, CMA
